Program Description

Sign up your little one for an exciting week of dramatic play! Half-days and full-days available.

BAL is offering fun and enriching theater camps to rising Kindergarteners during the weeks of June 22-August 28th in Carroll Gardens. Each week is a different theme and its own unique theater adventure. Enroll your child for one week or the entire summer!

Please send your child with a healthy lunch, two snacks, and a bottle of water. We are a nut-free zone so please pack snacks and food accordingly! If your child is participating in our aftercare program, please kindly send your child with one or two extra healthy snacks for the end of their day!

Our “sharing” is scheduled on Fridays at 2:30PM at Albee Dance. Both half-day and full-day participants are encouraged to participate. We love when parents and/or caregivers are able to attend the performance, however we do understand that scheduling is sometimes difficult. As long as your child knows in advance, our staff will always be present for your children as their “audience,” and will provide a lot of support!

Ages: Rising Kindergarteners
Hours: 9 AM–3 PM
Location: Albee Dance Studio (230 Carroll Street)

Early Drop-off is available starting at 8:00 am, Monday thru Friday ($50/per week).
